The crew of a Condor ferry which struck and killed a French fishermen in 2011 could face harsher penalties today.
In October, 58-year-old Captain Paul Le Romancer and First Officer Yves Tournon who is 48, were convicted of the manslaughter of Philippe Lesaulnier and given suspended sentences of 18 months and 12 months respectively.
Today, prosecutors will appeal those sentences, arguing that they should be longer. If the appeal to a court in Caen is accepted, the case will move to a higher court in Paris.
